Annie Watson

Annie is a BAFTA nominated filmmaker and Principal Lecturer in Film Production at Sheffield Hallam University. Her films and her current Ph.D. research explore the fictional viewpoint of teenage girls. Annie also makes filmpoems, which are projected onto buildings and screened internationally. She has been knitting since the age of 8.

Annie's practice-based research with the walking group includes 'Knitwalks', a project of walking and knitting with two Go Pros; one filming hands knitting, and the other strapped to the head, recording her view. The weather, conversation and terrain inform the knitting, stitches are dropped, wind-blown debris is caught. The knitting is a map of walks, each one defined through colour, amount and quality of stitches.
